Bethany Johnsen has joined Mortgage Network Inc. as a loan officer in the company’s Providence, R.I. office where she will be responsible for serving homebuyers and homeowners throughout the state. Johnsen brings 15 years of industry experience in the Rhode Island area to Mortgage Network, including an extensive background in real estate sales. A Rhode Island native, Johnsen joined Mortgage Network from Simsbury Bank in Warwick, R.I., where she was a mortgage loan originator. Prior, she spent 12 years as a Realtor in Rhode Island before transitioning to mortgage lending with Bank of America. Johnsen earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology at Rhode Island College.
“Bethany brings an impressive professional background to Mortgage Network’s Providence office,” said Jesse Kenner, manager of Mortgage Network’s Providence branch. “Few loan originators have her extensive direct experience in real estate sales, giving her valuable perspective in working with real estate professionals and homebuyers in the area. She is uniquely positioned to add tremendous value to each transaction, creating the excellent customer experiences that Mortgage Network is renowned for.”
Johnsen noted that New England home sales are promising for 2016, particularly in Rhode Island.
“Single-family home sales were up nearly 10 percent by the end of 2015, and based on industry research we expect first-time buyers to play an especially important role in the market,” said Johnsen. “I am looking forward to using all of my real estate and financial experience to help borrowers realize their homeownership dreams and to providing the industry’s best service to the real estate community. I am thrilled to be part of Mortgage Network’s team of experts in my home state of Rhode Island.”
